    The Most Under Rated Game you've played

    I saw a thread for the most over-rated video game. So that inspired me to create this one. Just as the title says, what do you think is the most under rated game that you've played? IMO, I think it would be Dante's Inferno for the 360. I really liked the way the game played. A simple hack in slash with two major weapons that you can upgrade by punishing or absolving people from the Bible. I really liked the way they depicted hell as well.


    Feel free to post your opinions. Thanks!

    Golden Sun. People here usually know what it is but I talk to some gamers IRL who have no idea. Sad

    Singularity. A lot of people thought that game was awful, but I thouroughly enojoyed it. My friend and I dubbed the time-slow-sphere the Spirit Bomb and screamed Kamehameha whenever we used it (I know they're different, relax!). Great times...

    A game for PS2 called Primal. It is one hell of a damn game, one of my favorites of all time. Likeable characters, awesome graphics, varied and unique environments. This game had it all for me. http://ps2.ign.com/objects/482/482061.html

    Suikoden series, specifically Suikoden Tactics, story was lacking but I loved the game play, if you're into turned based strategy, this is a great game for you.

    Saints Row 2!

    I sank 3 saves of 50+ hours into that game and still would be playing it, if I wasn't working like a fiend.

    The folks that compare it to GTA in the realm of "The graphics are bad. GTA is so better for x reason" are the same people that don't understand a witty joke until it's spelled out to them.

    Sadly, that includes most game reviewers.

    Best Review I have seen on it: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/vide...2-Saints-Row-2

    Saints Row: The Third is coming this year and outside of The Elder Scrolls new title, it's the game I'm looking forward to the most.

    Not quite, the people you punish, or absolve are actually more from ancient greek, egyptian, or mesopotamian mythology, granted there are a few biblical figures too. Also, something tells me you've never heard of the "Divine Comedy"... A shame really.

    Anyways, on topic.... Hmm, hard to say, I liked Anno 1417 (probably the wrong number), wasn't good at it, but I like it. Hmm

    agree with DCUO and shadow of the collosus, although the latter has actually built up quite a cult status .

    Lufia 2: Rise of the sinistrals

    Harvest moon on snes!!!

    Until very recently, Ico and even Shadow of the Colossus were not well known at all, and even people that have played SoC have never heard of Ico. Both are amazing games.

    Had to edit because another popped into my head. The Xenosaga series was awesome as well. Everyone talks about the story lines in the FF games, and they are great as well, but Xenosaga I, II, and III had one of the best stories in a game and some unforgettable characters.

    Hidden Source, it might not be an awesome online-game but it's one of the best LAN-Games I can think of, but most people I know just doesn't get it.

    The first one is a great low-budget game. The second one is an oldie that should've received more attention.
    I wouldn't say Amnesia is under-rated. GI gave it a 9/10 I believe. It's a great game nevertheless. Pretty much made me shit myself a couple times lol

    Same answer as the other thread: Phantom Dust, for XBox. This game could easily be an e-sport if they have invested time and money, the design and the enviroment of the game are great.

    I'd rather say both Penumbras are underrated =)
